About

Zero Down vest is an air-filled winter vest that gives wearers the possibility to control their level of warmth. By replacing the traditional feathers with inflatable air chambers, Zero Down is eco-friendly as well as efficient. Each Zero Down vest comes with an air nozzle, simply blow air in or use our specially designed Tiny Pump to inflate your vest to warm up.

Instead of traditional down, Zero Down vest utilizes the infinitely available natural resource- AIR as the heat retaining substance. In order to produce a traditional 600 fill-power (FP) down jacket, 13 ducks will be killed or live-plucked for their feathers and 7 tons of pure water will be polluted. With our innovative technology, there will be no more suffering and pollution. We are giving the clothing industry an ethical alternative over down.

Zero Down vest adopts an innovative fabric production technique-Zero-Down, the fabric are made from recycled plastic bottles. Zero Down gives new life to plastic bottles that go to waste by recycling them into fabric. With every Zero Down vest, we help to recycle 8.8 plastic bottles. We are not only Eco-friendly, but also very efficient. It is proven that Zero Down has the same heat retaining ability as a 600 fill- power (FP) down product and 1.3 times heat retaining ability as a cotton product.

Inflate to warm up, simply blow or pump air into the chambers. The more you inflate, the more air you trap inside your Zero Down Vest, thus the higher the insulating ability your vest is. The idea behind Zero Down vest is to create an insulation layer to prevent heat from dissipating from your body and therefore produce ideal warmth. With this technology, you can easily control the warmth by inflating and deflating your Zero Down vest.

In addition to keep you warm, our vest is also designed to breath. We use highly elastic fabric with laser drilling technology; Zero Down vest remains comfortable and dry while keeping you warm.  

We also designed this vest to be safe to use in outdoor environment and for adventure enthusiasts. We used high tech material which is waterproof and abrasion resistance. With Zero Down™, you will not need to worry about getting your vest dirty, wet, or broken while enjoying the nature.

Apart from warmth, Zero Down vest is so much lighter than a conventional down vest. The vest was purposely designed as ultra-light and thin, you will feel nothing when you wear it while still keep you warm. When it is hot to wear Zero Down vest, it is very easy to carry. It weighs only around 375 grams, light enough to be packed anywhere. Zero Down’s material is also wrinkle resistance and can be simply smoothed once air is inflated into it.  





What to do if you want to pledge for additional vest or pump? 

Example:

Pledging for additional 1 x Zero Down Vest and 1 x Tiny Pump means you will need to pledge additional US $104.

Zero Down Vest Super Early Bird + 1 Zero Down Vest + 1 Tiny Pump = US $79 + $79 +$25 = US $183

 This project is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 850+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $370M raised between them.

Risks and challenges

We are positive that we can and will deliver Zero Down Vest according to schedule, but there are always challenges and unforeseen obstacles that may arise, whether it’s in production, delivery, packaging, etc.
We already have multiple production samples, but we still need more time and funding to produce the Zero Down Vest at scale. Once we hit our goal, manufacturing and delivery should face minimum challenges.
We have confidence in our supply chain, but shipment can at times be tricky – issues can arise with too much demand, delaying delivery. Border customs can also cause issues, possibly resulting in a few-days delay. We will be transparent and provide updates if such issues arise.
We are ready to meet and possibly exceed our schedule.
